2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara gets connected Garmins

Garmin just announced that they’ll be working with Suzuki to provide a connected and integrated GPS navigation package for 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara and SX4 models that include the SX4 Crossover, SX4 Sport and SX4 SportBack. Apparently this is the first of its kind in the US to offer online information like Google local search, traffic, weather, fuel prices, movie listings, flight status, etc.

The navigation system will be based Garmin nuvi 1690 and we found this photo on Suzuki’s website so you know what it will look like when they say ‘integrated’. The press release says “unit sits in a fully-integrated mount, which provides power to the unit as well as turn-by-turn voice prompting through the vehicle’s sound system” which means it’s not fully integrated into the center console and can be taken on and off to be used in other vehicles. Other customizations include a Suzuki splash screen and a preloaded database of Suzuki dealerships.

All that wireless data will be free for the first year but after it costs $60/year which comes out to be $5/mo. Press Release

    That sounds like a far more reasonable price than higher end makes charge.
